... an amphitheatre was. It's not at all grand, just a window in a street of houses. Near to his home is the oldest gelateria in Florence. They passed the recipe from father to son until now. We tried melon and banana, weird mix, didn't beat San Giagiamamono. We saw the Basilica of Santa Croce. It's very interesting from the front as it has a blue Jewish Star of David.
